Member Organisation Profile-
Safe Pets Safe Families provides foster care for the pets (companion animals) of people in the community who are experiencing a crisis, primarily due to domestic violence, as well as homelessness or mental health crisis.
” Our service helps give people the confidence to leave dangerous situations without leaving their pets behind and at risk of violence or abandonment.”
SPSF also reduces the burden on animal shelters by decreasing the number of animals being neglected, surrendered and needlessly euthanised.
Currently operating in the Adelaide metropolitan region with more services due in 2018/19. (Tasmania, Melbourne and Far North NSW)
